We Have To Mentally Leave College First—-Yoky’s Job Searching Experience

images-1For two months, I didn’t put my full effort into finding a job, although I will graduate very soon. I applied to a lot of places through a lot of websites, but something didn’t feel quite right. I was in a mode where I applied for jobs because I knew that I had to, but not because I wanted to. Then I figured out why: my college experience has been such a safe nest for me that I subconsciously didn’t want to fly away.  I feel that I am more successful at JMU than at any other place; I have a strong network here; I have more fun here than I ever had before.

Be prepared to be a loser again;
be prepared to feel like you are not capable of doing anything;
be prepared to make mistakes and move on. 

That’s what I want to tell myself, and I think you will benefit from it too.

CinderellaBye bye JMU. You have been treating me like a princess. Now it’s time for me to become Cinderella again. It will be challenging, but that’s part of what makes it fun.
